What could possibly go wrong?

Auditing and Accounting Unit


Foreign Operations Department


Credit Bank Benin, Cotonou Branch


Republic of Benin.


Good Day


I am Mr.Clifford Martin,The Auditor in charge of Foreign Remittance Department of Credit Bank Benin in the Commercial city of Cotonou Benin Republic .


This is a very confidential proposition for you.On December 21st 2003,an Importer of Textiles and Automobiles for the past Thirteen years,Mr.BRETT HARWOOD made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit fortwelve calendar months,valued at US$10.2musd( Ten million two hundred thousand United States Dollars) in my branch.


Upon maturity on December 20th 2004 as his Credit Officer,I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply.After a month,we sent a reminder and finally I discovered from his employees,that Mr. BRETT HARWOOD was one of the passengers who died with his entire family in the ill-fated plane Crash involving a boeing 727 UTA Chartered Flight that took off from Cotonou Benin Republic and crashed into Atlantic Ocean on thursday 25th December 2003.


For further details of the Plane Crash, Please Visit


http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/12/26/benin.crash/index.html Further investigations,and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.Again,I made further investigation and discovered that Mr.BRETT HARWOOD did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paper work in my Bank.


This sum of US$10.2 million USD is still sitting in my Bank no one will ever come forward to claim it.According to the International Banking ethics, codes and Laws, at the expiration of 4 (four) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Benin Government if no body applies to claim the fund.


Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr.BRETT HARWOOD. This is simple, I will like you to respond immediately with your full names and contact information's so as I will send to you a specimen copy of an application form which you will refill and send to the bank putting claim over the said balance with the bank as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased.


The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 45% for me and 45%for you while 5% will be set aside for any expenses that may arise in the process of transferring this fund into your chosen/nominated bank account you wish to receive it and 5% to the motherless and the needy in your country.


Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant information's.


Please send to me your confiden tial telephone and fax numbers for easy communication, oral discussion and more directives on what next to do.


You should observe utmost confidentiality and be rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country which you will be the arrow head of the investment.


I must not fail to tell you that this transaction is totally risk free and legitimate.


Awaiting your urgent reply to my personal mail box

*Email removed due to reasons of Serious Business*

Thanks and GOD bless.


Mr.Clifford Martin

Nuff said. Though I can guarantee that customs here don't particually like people knowingly importing fraudulent documents - even if you know they are fake


I was more posting for a laugh at the poorly structured attemptof said scam. I have removed the scammers email address because as you say for everything we laugh at and think "how stupid can you be" there is someone who's job it is to treat it as Serious Business.


Is cutting and pasting something from my own email bringing it into the country? Well I'm not sure I want to have that (or any other form of) argument with anyone who works for customs.
